Michael Bay has revealed that it was Steven Spielberg who demanded Megan Fox be fired from Dark Of The Moon. This is according to a few UK websites including the Mirror.

They say that Spielberg was outraged after Fox compared Bay to Hitler on his sets. Michael Bay insists that he was not hurt by the comment. This news is being reported as coming from Bay himself.

He said: “You know the Hitler thing? Steven said: ‘Fire her right now.’”

I can actually compare myself to Bay at this moment. When someone calls me a name, I just try to shrug it off and go my way, but there's always that friend who wants revenge. ;) The one time I respect Bay... is the time he fired Megan Fox. Weird, huh? :lol:

Huh. I always assumed Spielberg is one of the nicest guys in Hollywood. So Spielberg wanting to fire Fox must've been extreme.

Hmm, she makes a comment about Hitler - and a guy named Steven SPIELBERG immediately fires her.

I'm shocked!

Considering Spielberg is of Jewish faith I'd think that the Hitler comment probably offended him. I don't wanna bring religion into this and I respect Steven Spielberg, he is one of my favorite directors, and in no way speak for him. Megan Fox is hot and all but she needs to learn not to shoot her mouth off to the press. Especially when the Transformers movie series is her only real success (though I did like Jennifer's Body).

That was the right call. She was very petulant and disrespectful of the production that brought her much fame and fortune. Sure the job can be grueling and difficult, but the payoff is enormous - don't bite the hand that feeds you.

Yes it was a joke, but ultimately an insensitive remark as well. The poor comparison (citing Hitler) would automatically inflame Spielberg no question. He obviously has much regard for WWII and history in general.

well in the first movie i actually thought she was kinda ok. specially the part where she was looking at bbs engine and we could see her stomach. i like hard stomachs like that. but in the sec one she has fake lips and a couple other facial things that just make her look like the bride of frankenstien. plus rosie looks like a way better actress and just seems to have a little better attitude.

[strike]There's a reason to include Spielberg into the Hall of Fame![/strike] :P

Regardless of race/religion, comparing somebody to Hitler is just despicable. Glad people can get fired over that.

well i was wrong about spielberg not doing anything on the movies other than putting his name on them, thanks to him the franchise is one step closer to being good. Still would have liked to see her fired cause they finally realized that shes a horrible actress and not as good looking as every one thinks but this works too. Thanks Steve, you've earned your place in the Transformers Hall of fame.

As they say in some circles:

PWNED!!!

This should also put the antisemetic theories about RotF to rest. If Spielburg was willing to fire Fox over this then it's safe to assume that theory is totally baseless.

the new girl isn't as hot.i know plenty of "ladies men" in this forum will disagree but that my opinion and most of the people who i've talked to (including my girlfriend).too bad but as we all know you can piss off your boss a little but you piss off your boss's boss and thats it.espescially on those taboo subjects such as religion.(speilberg is a jew but not just any jew the one who directed shindlers list)yeah she probably didn't give it a thought but that statement may have cost her career in hollywood.speilberg is one of the guys you don't piss off.and he's not the only powerful jew in hollywood either.so come to think of it what is her next project?there are a lot of hot girls in hollywood.let's hope she uses her real talents and starts adult films lol

While surely it was a poor choice to compare Bay to Hitler, I highly doubt there was any anti-semitism intended in the comment whatsoever. I'm sure she was just saying Bay is a dictator-like control freak on set. If this is true and that's the reason, it's pretty pathetic that Spielberg is that much of a sensitive, PC puss.
